Real reviews from customers who have purchased this product

Pago de los Capellanes Finca El Picón is a single-variety Tempranillo red wine produced by the Pago de los Capellanes winery in the D.O. Ribera del Duero, Spain.

Wine & Spirits magazine listed Pago de los Capellanes among the 100 best wineries in the world; proof of the excellent international reputation that this family winery, in Pedrosa de Duero, Burgos, has earned through hard work and high quality, and now one of the best known winemakers.

The word “Pago” refers to a plot of land, particularly in vineyards or olive groves. This one in particular used to belong to the town chaplains (capellanes) in the fourteenth century, hence its name: Pago de los Capellanes.

There are two plots in particular whose characteristics produce unique wines of extraordinary quality. This is down to low-yield agriculture and plenty of patience and dedication. One of these plots is where Pago de los Capellanes Finca El Picón comes from. Vines planted in loamy clay soils with gravel and influenced by a climate with significant temperature contrasts between day and night, which is great for ripening, alcohol strength, colour, tannins and a very balanced acidity. These plots are harvested selectively in 15 kg boxes.

When the clusters reach the winery they are left to rest in a cold chamber for 24 hours before being processed in order to preserve their best characteristics. The grapes ferment in French oak wood vats at a controlled temperature to achieve their maximum expression. Fermentation is activated using an already fermenting must that is made with selected yeasts from the plot itself.

After 40 days the wine is devatted by bleeding to start the malolactic fermentation that takes place in French oak barrels for 32 days without adding bacteria. It is then aged for 22 months in select-grain French oak barrels. It is racked four times and bottled without filtering or clarifying. To finish, the wine rests for 40 months in the winery before being sold.

Pago de los Capellanes Finca El Picón is, without doubt, an exquisite and powerful Ribera del Duero Tempranillo.

Since this adventure began, the married couple Rodero-Villa, surrounded by an exceptional team and advocating for a very particular way of conceiving wine, has now managed to fulfil their dream that goes back to 1980. The dream of making Pago de los Capellanes achieve quality recognition national and internationally, with modern profile wines, with Atlantic, elegant and tasty hints, produced with enough expertise, so they always carry their Castilian origins with them.
